To configure the remote to operate your TV just follow the instruction booklet to the letter but don't expect to see anything on the screen while doing this as I did. It just works.
The HDD is huge and I haven't come close to filling it up yet, it will record about 250 hours in SP mode. The unit looks good and is very quiet and is unnoticeable while watching a recorded program on the TV.
One minor niggle is that the auto chapter setting which I've set at every 15 minutes only seems to work on the DVD drive and not on the HDD but maybe I'm doing something wrong there. You can set chapter marks manually using the remote.
All in all I'm very happy with the LG RHT599H and would recommend it.
Bought to replace our vintage LG VCR/DVD player which still works fine but is hopelessly out of date now, and a bit of a brick.
Setup was very straightforward. We have Virginmedia so it was just a case of unplugging the old VCR and plugging this one in. It automatically searched for channels but once it had found the cable feed I stopped it looking further. Although it has Freeview+ built-in we won't be using it unless Virgin wacks the subs up too high! There are tons of bells and whistles so we started by just making sure we had it connected up correctly so as to see TV this evening with the recorder turned on and turned off (i.e. pass through). No problem.
We then tried a brief recording just to learn how to do it and, again, it's very straightforward as long as you read through the relevant bit in the brief but sufficient manual. Frankly, once you've set up one recording it's pretty much second nature and logical. One pleasant surprise was the lack of tape noise (obviously!). 500Gb seems loads of space (compared to our old 3 hours max) but I'm sure we'll soon be filling it with all sorts of stuff.
Next step will be burning to DVD.
A very neat, trim piece of kit.
If I can work out how to do it I will update this review as we try out all its capabilities over the next few weeks.

Continuing to work well. Copying (dubbing) to DVD very simple and fast - as long as you remember to set it to the 'fast' option. I set my first DVD copy to SP (standard play) so it played the recording and dubbed it in real time. My second one took about 4 minutes for a recording of about 1hr 40mins.Read more ›
I did try the setting to get the maximum duration that can be recorded on the HD but found that obviously the quality dropped quite drastically. I found leaving it in LP mode gives me more than 400 hrs of recording time without noticable quality degradation.
Would I buy another if I needed to, yes I would!

Absolutely dreadful! Too many flaws to even comment upon. We have a LUMIX recorder in the living room and this LGW one in the bedroom so can directly compare. Read morePublished 15 months ago by M. Austin
It appears to record what it wants. Sometimes it agrees with my request and records what I've asked for. Often it disagrees and refuses to record. Read morePublished 17 months ago by Crab Bucket

It does not do what it is supposed to do. A great idea combining HDD and DVD-R but LG could not pull it off. Highly unreliable.Published 21 months ago by Alan McLaughlin

It is a really hit and miss machine. It quite often changes its own settings and so with the recordings sometimes you just get the subtitles and sometimes no sound. Read morePublished on 25 May 2014 by KittyKat
